Farmers Insurance - District 33

Current and Former Military Members

Agent | Portland, OR, United States

Farmers Insurance has been a long-time supporter of hiring military veterans and assisting them in their transition to civilian life. “The military background gives veterans the experience needed to succeed in our fast-paced environment,” said Luisa Acosta-Franco, Head of Multicultural Recruiting and Field Support at Farmers. “Military veterans are natural leaders, which is essential to the success of agency owners and all of our employees here at Farmers.”

Military support is nothing new to the insurance company; in fact, it is part of the company’s DNA and goes back to before the company was even established. Prior to starting Farmers Insurance in 1928, one of the company’s co-founders, John C. “Jack” Tyler, served in World War I. Just as Farmers was founded on a strong culture of supporting our troops, it continues to be proud supporters of our men and women in uniform today.
